FYI -- "green light" means that Dynamic Volume is engaged as well. If you just want Dynamic EQ on, the light should be red. See pg 51 of the manual for a cryptic explanation of this lighting system, and also an explanation of the Reference Offset that JHAz mentioned.
If you are listening with "green light" on, make sure you aren't still on the default "midnight" setting for Dynamic Volume, as this heavily restricts the dynamics of the content you are watching. Play with the three strength settings (day/eve/midnght) and find the "sweet spot" for various content.
BTW -- all Audyssey settings are SOURCE SPECIFIC so you can have things set up differently for, say, the cable box vs the DVD input vs the CD player.
we've noticed that when watching TV (connected to my Sharp Aquos with an optical cable), the sub is too active, rumbling constantly when newscasters are talking, during otherwise quiet commercials, and so on.
if you haven't yet, you should read through my FAQ. In the middle of the Audyssey section there is a comprehensive discussion of "rumbly" bass and what to do about it -- it is a VERY common problem with cable TV (especially newscasts) because the TV shows are not mastered to a film reference, and often the studio monitoring systems where they are mixed do not have subwoofers and they don't realize they haven't filtered out the low freq. rumbles, wind noise, mic noise, etc.
Check out the Audyssey section, I explain in more detail how the "Reference Offset" works in theory:http://batpigworld.com/fadq.html#audyssey
Another Q: There's no HDMI 'out' on the TV to send its signal through the receiver, so the signal doesn't go through the receiver. To watch TV, we just choose the TV's own 'TV' mode. This means we can't view the 2310ci's setup menu when watching TV. Is there a good way/workaround to view the menu to change settings in TV input mode?
sounds like you are using the internal tuner of the TV, and not an external cable box? Then, no, there is no way to do what you are asking because the video cannot route through the receiver.
